I’ve been 100% dairy free for a full week so far. I don’t feel a difference in my energy levels, nor do I seem to be noticeably dropping any weight. It is only the first week, though, so I am not worried. My skin does seem to be clearer than it usually is, but whether or not that is specifically from cutting dairy from my diet, I am not sure.
Staying dairy-free has been relatively easy for me. I haven’t had cravings for butter, milk, yogurt, or cheese. No withdrawl symptoms what-so-ever. (Can you get withdrawl from going off of dairy? I am not sure…) I got rid of all of that stuff from my fridge, so I haven’t been tempted by it. I did have to change my typical breakfast of a protein shake because the protein powder I use is made from whey. Now I make eggs and veggies for breakfast.
Big win this week: I found cultured coconut milk to take the place of kefir in my diet. Kefir does wonders for my digestion, so I was very happy when I found this. It has a pretty good taste, so I am pleased.
How is your dairy-free challenge going?
